As the summer show season kicks in to gear, some of Taking Stock’s followers are beginning to send in pictures of their wins. Dafydd Jones, kindly sent in this picture of Sportsman’s Spitfire which took the interbreed sheep champion title at Nefyn agricultural show earlier this week.
Spitfire was purchased last year together with the entire Accar Texel flock from Suffolk breeder Myfyr Efans.
He is by Baltier Panther and was bred by Charlie Boden. Commenting on his win, Mr Jones said: “This was Spitfire’s first show and we have to say we are very pleased with the result as in January we nearly lost him to pneumonia.”
This weekend we will be covering Newark and Notts County Show and next week Royal Ulster and Devon. Why not send in some of your picture from local/national shows and we will do our best to put them on the blog/FWi galleries.
